There have been many books and television shows about how the Great Pyramids were built. Let us start with those theories on how to build the pyramid the hard way: Most of those theories used ramps of some kind.Though on the late night talk shows some guests say the lifting of the stone was done by space aliens, other theories say the lifting was done by Giant Cone headed men that hummed them into place, still others say the lifting was done by good or bad Angels and there is the Poured Concrete System that never addresses how to fabricate the huge granite blocks?
The Valley of the Nile and its river jointly reveal the answer to that age old Mystery. The Experts say that, “The Great Pyramid is on a big flat plateau”, giving you pictures of a flat land that looks as if that plateau goes on for hundreds of miles, and that plateau does go on for hundreds of miles. Even so, the River Nile cuts a very deep valley through that plateau. The Nile river valley is hundreds of feet deep and in some places eight to twelve miles wide then narrowing to spots like where the Aswan dam is now, and behind that dam is Lake Nasser, which is the Second Sea of Nun. These narrows in the Nile valley are called cataracts. There is a narrowing just up the river from Cairo and then the Nile River begins its delta. That narrows is a lot wider now than it was twelve thousand years ago; although just a few years ago a hydroelectric dam project was canceled at that point. The reason was that dam’s lake would have covered the Great Pyramid.
Before Egypt was known by the Greek name Egypt, Aigu-ptis which is derived from aigialos, a sea (as in Aegean), andptoeo to cause to fly away, Egypt’s ancient Semitic name was Metz-ra-yim the meaning of which is Metz the wall or fence or to confine, Ra the power, and Yim the river or sea.
Just as with Theseus in the Labyrinth we have been given a ball of thread to follow to unravel the mystery of how a Bronze Age society was able to erect two Great Pyramids more than four hundred and forty-seven feet high. Herodotus said:
“The Pyramid was twenty years in the building and the Machines to lift the stone were made of wood.”
(Not of reeds)
The Machines to stack the stones were “Made of Wood?” Machines are translated from the Greek word Machana, Which can mean:
“Wooden, Stone Barges”
However, if you go to any common Greek Lexicon, it will say that “machana” is defined as a machine. But surprisingly, if you look at similarly spelled words you will find they are defined as ship captains and seamen. Furthermore, if boats are not machines; what are they crocodiles?Strangely, yes, those machanas were sometimes shown as crocodiles in Egyptian sculptures. Both Osiris and his son's feet were on crocodile.Horus: in the specific form of Heru-pa-Khered is depiction where young Horus is standing on the back of a crocodile, (also known as stone barges).Heru-pa-Khered is defined from ancient Coptic Greek as “Heru": the Coptic form of the Greek word: "HER" and is defined as "the tool of strengths." This root word is used in the Greek man/god named Hercules; Pa, the narrows (of the Nile); Khered meant, earth or stone moving.”
Therefore, for clarification,I have taken a short excerpt from my new book Locked Gates by Howard West; and turned that excerpt into a video that shows the historical connections that links the Egyptian god Horus, Heru-pa-Khered to the building of the Great Pyramids, Crocodiles over the Pyramids.
